September 20, 2022 - Season 7, Episode 1: A New Dawn
Update 1 - Mod Version 7.1.1
New Save Game is Absolutely Required


  • Mod code updated for Stellaris 3.5.

  • Aquatics and Toxoids are now fully compatible with NSC2.

  • The Escort Carrier ship class has been removed. The Battlecruiser now has a Light Carrier upgrade option to replace the separate class. The old Escort Carrier tech has been renamed to the Light Carrier upgrade and should become available after Battlecruisers.

  • The Freebooters content has been removed from the main mod and will be separated into a standalone mod. A link will be provided on this page when it is finished and uploaded.

  • The Drop Pods feature has been removed along with the Escort Carrier. Instead, vanilla transports are now Assault Transports and can be designed and armed. For now, they will have 3 sections available that are the same loadouts as the Cruiser mid sections. This will be expanded upon in future updates.

  • All ship classes except the Exploration Cruiser have completely new weapon/utility loadouts using a new balance formula.

  • Strike Craft can now be carried on different classes: Cruisers (1 Hangar), Battlecruisers (8 Hangars with Light Carrier Upgrade), Battleships (4 Hangars), Carriers (16/20/24 Hangars), Titans (10 Hangars), and the Flagship (Up to 70 Hangars)

  • A new Fleet Mothball feature has been introduced into the mod. This allows the player to "mothball" fleets, deactivating them and reducing their maintenance cost until they're needed for emergencies. Simply place a fleet in orbit of an owned planet and mothball it using the Decisions panel in the Planetary view. It can be reactivated in the same way.

  • All starbases now take 360 days to upgrade to their next level, to hopefully solve a random bug where starbases disappear after upgrading.

  • Defense Stations and Fortresses have been removed since there are no models for them for the newer species packs. At this time, only Defense Platforms are available, however these will be redesigned and upgradable to higher levels with more weapons in a future update. Platforms have had their base HP increased from 5000 to 10000 to temporarily compensate for the loss of the bigger stations.

  • Empires may now only build 10 Exploration Cruisers in total.

  • Added new outliner icons for the NSC2 Megastructures.

  • Fixed a bug where Maurauder Cruisers had the Science Ship icon in the system view.

  • Fixed a bug where the Galactic Hospital model was missing.

  • Fixed a bug where the HP of a Stellar Stronghold was less than the Grand Citadel.

  • The Carrier class can now equip the Carrier Command & Control Network special component, which increases the damage, fire rate, and speed of all Strike Craft by 25%.

  • Removed the Archaeology Lab component from the Exploration Cruiser because its modifier is not working in the game.

  • Modders: All NSC2 asset files have been reworked and combined into a single file for each species. All deprecated ship sections that Paradox stopped using a long time ago have been removed from NSC2 and all ship classes now only use active vanilla ship sections.
